Why Operation IMPACT?
The world around us is in desperate need! Without Christ, children are growing up under the influence of crime, gang activity, dysfunctional families, and immorality. They need to know that there is hope! There is a Savior, Jesus Christ, who brings forgiveness, freedom and a future.
We are committed to:
Connecting committed believers with their communities.
Discipling children in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Mobilizing world-changers to stand in the gap for the next generation.
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” Romans 10:14
How it works
Partnering churches bring the light of Christ directly to their community through three week-long Bible Clubs and one Friday Night Celebration. The Bible Clubs, held at parks, apartment complexes, and community centers provide the opportunity to share the gospel with children who might otherwise never hear it. The Friday Night Celebration, held at the church, is a time for the children from the three clubs, their families, and members from the church to meet together. They enjoy a presentation, food, fun, and fellowship.
Children are evangelized and discipled through the dynamic week-long Bible Clubs held right in their communities. They are taught life changing Bible lessons, inspiring missionary stories, and memorable Bible verses and songs. They also enjoy snacks and games. Each two-hour Bible Club allows children to hear about the hope Jesus offers and experience His love through the volunteers and teachers.
During Operation IMPACT, teams of summer missionaries work alongside volunteers from local churches. Together, they stand in the gap for the next generation. Through this partnership, the ministry in OKC does not end after the fifth day of club. Volunteers from the local churches continue investing in the children and their families long after the Bible Clubs have ended. Summer missionaries receive training and experience that inspires them to make a difference for eternity. They are equipped with the practical skills needed to effectively reach children with the gospel wherever they go.
